After being granted an extended break following his exploits with Brazil at the 2016 Copa America this summer, today marked Coutinho's first day back in training with Liverpool.
And the 24-year-old midfield maestro wasted no time in reminding fans and teammates of just what he can produce on his day.
That's after a moment of magic from the Brazilian that ended with a beautiful close-range finish was captured on camera and uploaded to the Anfield club's official Twitter account. Scroll down this article to see the cheeky finish for yourself...

The goal also serves as a welcome of sorts for recent signing Loris Karios, who, like the rest of us, just didn't see the flicked finish coming as he watched the low cross come in:
While some Liverpool fans may be slightly concerned with how easily the new 'keeper was deceived at his near post, they will also be glad to see Coutinho doesn't appear to have returned from his break with any rust.
Having struggled for Brazil as they were dumped out of the Copa America in the group stages, Jurgen Klopp and co. will certainly be hoping the diminutive playmaker isn't carrying any hangover into his preparations for the new Premier League season.
After a 2015-16 campaign that saw him net eight goals and produce some standout performances under Klopp, Coutinho's form in the upcoming season will play a huge part in deciding whether Liverpool can kick on from the strong foundations set in place over the second half of last season.
As is in evidence in the above goal, the former Inter Milan has the skill and football intelligence to become one of the Premier League's most dominant attacking threats.
If Liverpool can keep Daniel Sturridge fit, and the likes of Firminho and new signing Sadio Mane can maintain their own impressive league form, there could be exciting times and in Klopp's first full season in charge.
Coutinho's return to training may, though, have come too early for him to be involved in Liverpool's pre-season game against Fleetwood Town tomorrow evening.
